Global Economic Data

·     Dallas Fed President Lorie Logan on Thursday said that if the Fed skips a rate hike at its meeting in two weeks, it doesn’t imply they will stop hiking for good. The Fed skipped a rate increase at its June meeting before raising its benchmark interest rate by 25 basis points to a range of 5.25%-5.5% at its last meeting in July. Logan said another skip “could be appropriate.” “But skipping does not imply stopping,” she added.

·     Chicago Fed President Austan Goolsbee on Thursday suggested the Fed is almost done raising interest rates. “We are very rapidly approaching the time when our argument is not going to be about how high should the rates go,” Goolsbee said. “It’s going to be an argument of how long we need to keep the rates at this position before we’re sure that we’re on the path back to the target” of 2% inflation.
